Biography

1) Iskra is a band with heavy influence (a style they dub “”) from Canada. Iskra was formed by members of the ’90s crust band Black Kronstadt, whose sound was more comparable to that of bands like Provoked. The band has recently been gaining a lot of attention in the NW crust and scenes. They played at 2007’s Burning Portland, a massive 2 day crust/grind festival. Iskra was denied entry into the US for a recent tour, and had to cancel numerous dates, but were eventually able to finish most of the tour.

2) Iskra (www.facebook.com/iskraofficial) is a hardcore/metal band from Norway that was founded back in 2002. The band have released , “EP” (2005) , “Silent Waves” (Single 2006) , “ISKRA” (Album 2007) “Unleashed” (Live album 2008) and “Kaleidoscope” (Album 2013)

3) Iskra is a Swedish Jazz band:
Baritone sax player and jazz veteran Allan Olsson was one member of the GL Unit. He in turn introduced them to drummer Sune Spångberg and in March 1971 they formed Iskra, unaware that there already existed a British group by that name. The reason for resuscitating the name of the old Bolshevik newspaper was the same for both groups, namely a mixture of music and politics. While hunting sites, Iskra came in contact with a small theatre in Stockholm named Teater 9. It was here that the music series named Öppen musik (Open Music) was started, a central musical happening where the scene was opened to as many forms of musical expression as possible.
